I send a lot of emails to myself from my Mac to my iPhone containing logos that I am designing, normal pictures or otherwise. However, I have a problem with the Mail app. Whenever I send too many photos, or photos that are very big, I have to go through the message and save each photo individually to Photos. Whenever I send small, or just a few pictures, when I hold my tap on the picture, it will give me a prompt to save all of the pictures in the email.

My question: Is there any way to save all of the pictures from an email, no matter the number or size of the photos? Screenshots would be appreciated. Thanks!
